Shuttle Computer Group and ScholarChip have teamed up to create a solution designed to keep track of student and staff school attendance efficiently and cost effectively. The Safety and Operations System incorporates X50 all-in-one computer with the latter's software and accessories in a portable kiosk that is designed to be multi-purpose and placed where needed, capturing attendance at a rate over 40 students per minute. The kiosk includes two screens which display student photos as their contactless NFC ID card is waived near the card readers. A printer is attached to the kiosk to create temporary IDs and late passes. When connected to a network, attendance is monitored in real time, giving administrators vital security information as well as accurate student counts used in state funding. "We find our partner's computers to be highly integrated and fully compatible with our hardware and software. With their devices, we experience full API Support, huge value, rapid turn-around, and deployment of hardware and integrated card readers. Their expertise and customer service continues to exceed our expectations," said Dr. Maged Atiya, CTO, ScholarChip. "With their assistance, we now offer schools an integrated school attendance kiosk, allowing students to register their demographics, attendance, and location with the tap of their smart ID. This is the first instance of a high volume, industrial strength, NFC touch screen PC."
